Turkey time Cooking for a crowd? Roast two smaller turkeys instead of a large one. Carve only one at first and use the other for presentation until the meat on the first turkey is gone. To help keep your bird from drying out in the refrigerator before you roast it, store it breast-side down. Weigh the neck and giblets after removing them from the turkey. They can weigh a pound or more, so subtracting that weight will affect the total roasting time. Coffee celebration
Keeping cool One of the greediest energy users in your home is in the kitchen: The refrigerators. To keep refrigeration costs as low as possible: Make sure your refrigerator and freezer temperatures aren't set too low. Refrigerators should be at 37 to 40 degrees, and freezers should be at 5 degrees (0 degrees in separate freezers for long-term storage). On the other hand, food can spoil if temperatures are too high. An appliance thermometer left in the refrigerator or freezer for 24 hours can help you verify the temperature.
